Attending Scotiacon is made as easy as possible, we offer a ticket to attend and have a discounted rate available with the venue hotel. There is no requirement to be residential to enjoy the convention. We offer three options of attendance level, Standard (Attendee), Eat Scotland (As attendee with admission to Eat Scotland food tasting event) and Sponsor (all the extra goodies).

Please note that the main hotel has sold out on core nights. It is still possible to extend stays on Thursday, Sunday and Monday nights.

Alternative hotels:

Livingston Travelodge, EH54 7EY Hotel website link

Chain Runner by Marstons, EH54 6GA. Hotel website link

Both of these hotels are about a fifteen minute walk from the main venue. We are awaiting a quotation back on running a shuttle service from the Travellodge site to the main hotel venue. Details will be posted up when we have them confirmed.

To contact the main hotel call 0844 8159 102 and select option 1 Monday-Friday between 8am-6pm and quote the reference number provided when you register with the convention.

PRICING

In order to keep the pricing of the convention as simple as possible, while also offering as much flexibility as we can to our attendees, we have kept the costs for the hotel and the convention separate. This gives you full choice on how much you want to spend on your stay, making this convention very affordable and the perfect con for first-timers.

However, if you do choose to stay at the Mercure hotel, we have secured a discount especially for our attendees. The details will be in the registration information sent when you register for the convention.

Scotiacon offers different levels of attendance as well as the option to come and capture the taste of Scotland in our “Eat Scotland” event. Entry to the “Eat Scotland” event is in no way limited to our sponsor level attendees or those that sign up for it during the registration process. You’re more than welcome to come and enjoy the event by signing up at the convention, those this does come with a small entrance fee.

If you are a registered carer for an attendee please contact us for information on arrangements for your attendance.
